So, reading further on the Weber website, it is the same double walled construction and does include the diffuser.

Weber's US website has the "new" Summit Kamado K6 charcoal grills:

https://www.weber.com/US/en/grills/charcoal-grills/summit-kamado-series/

Looking at the pics (and I have zero inside info or anything, just comparing the info on the weber website), the K6 visually looks very similar.  The price for the base cooker (no table) is significantly less than the current Summit Charcoal grill.  Aside from the lack of ignitor, it's possible that to get to the lower price point for K6 that the diffuser plates, heavy duty charcoal basket, etc. may not be included in the new K6 model and those would be add ons.  Complete conjecture on my part.  Although if the K6 is does include everything you need, then that lower price point minus the ignitor seems like a great price, no brainer.

Nice! Looks like the stand-alone now has a new lower triangle without the angle iron type triangle support. Also now has 3 x 360 deg castors which is a welcomed update IMO.

I'll be ordering one as soon as Weber lets me. Also watching the price on the older model at BBQGuys.com to see if they do a price drop on existing inventory.

According to the tracking info it looks like it should be here on Tuesday. I have had shipments come in on that freight company in the past and their delivery estimate wasn't very accurate though.

Any luck with the delivery? I'm wanting the grilling center version, and just spoke to Weber on the phone - they indicated it was a rebranding/and might have some slight upgrades (I asked specifically about smoke leakage and the CS rep indicated the lid may have had minor updates to address it), but otherwise was the same grill with new branding and a new price. Hopefully this is all true, because that issue was my only hesitation, and the lower price is great.
